NOS 1200 valve guides

Does anyone know where I can get New Old Stock 1200 Valve Guides ? I’ve removed a cylinder head on a 1200 that’s been sitting for God knows how long ? It’s only has 23000miles on the engine but one of the valves are stuck open . I’m afraid the valve guides are toast . Any help is appreciated.

The guides are probably fine, just the valve rusted open. Tap it out, clean it up and get on with it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

If the guides are nad they can be reamed out and bushings installed. O agree with Dave though probably just needs a little cleaning.
I would add this. File the burr off the valve stem where the keeper is located.
